In 1997 the last Whisky Distillery in New Zealand was closed down, and the hundreds of barrels of Cask Strength whisky auctioned off or mothballed. In 2010, we bought the last 80,000 litres in 443 barrels from what had previously been stored in an old airplane hangar. This Whisky now resides near the shores of the picturesque Historic Oamaru harbour. These are exceptionally rare drams from what was once the world’s southern-most distillery.
We are proud to be taking New Zealand Whisky to the World stage and our fine products are enjoyed by many, in all corners of the globe.
We will start distilling in the very near future, and we are looking forward to seeing New Zealand Whisky flourish around the country - and the world - yet again!
